Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMODEVTOOLS-175) javamail package is not included in server runtime
Date Tue, 04 Sep 2007 14:32:49 GMT


Rick McGuire commented on GERONIMODEVTOOLS-175:

The javamail jar is a merged jar file that includes the javamail spec apis inside of this.
 This was done to get around the configuration problems anybody who chose to use the SMTP
provider kept running into.  Because the jars were split originally, the javamail apis were
in the default classpath, but the provider classes were not, resulting in NoProviderFound
exceptions.  In 2.0, the merged uber jar replaced the split setup, so the javamail jar file
is the api replacement for the old javamail spec jar.  

In any event, this should be part of the server classpath, as this is a required component
of the javaee5 specification.
